Calibrated to capture every nuance of your performance, from soft flourishes to hammering chords, and with aftertouch, KeyLab MkII puts the keyboard back into controller keyboard.

The amount of versatility and how affordable this midi controller is.

Product Review

I'm a beat maker slash rapper slash MC but now I want to take my skill to the next level, my new goal is to write songs for other artists in English and Spanish. I'm so eager to learn music theory and I'm slowly getting there, I researched this midi controller and I found that it's extremely user friendly. I'm so happy I got this controller. Thank you American Musical.

Probably best bang for the buck in keyboard midi controllers

Bought this to start exploring my Arturia analog factory. Has great keyboard feel, loads of possibilities when combining multiple controls, well built and finished. Works great with the DAW's that I own.

What I've been waiting for

Product Review

Over the last few years I've been searching for a keyboard that has Ableton integration, hardware synth control and an intelligible interface. It seemed under most brands there was only a compromise. Without going into all of the negatives or compromises of what was available, it seems there is finally two options the Novation SL MKIII and the Arturia Keylab MKII. I went with the Arturia because it covered everything I wanted at a lower cost and the layout seemed less excessive. The build quality feels like a professional tool not a toy. It feels quite substantial and solid. Unfortunatley, my white paint had two tiny little chips on it, but I'm not going to sweat that. Ableton integration just worked out of the box, I love the keybed, sliders and pots are smooth and feel great to the touch with their soft matte coating. I finally have midi control, CV control, aux, DAW integration, and a quality enough keyboard to run all the hardware synths. It was worth the wait and the cost

Solid build, feature-packed, and nice touch

Product Review

First off, I use this board mainly for stage, but it also makes a great hub for your home studio. This is an instrument, so its most important facet should be touch response. It's listed as "Semi-weighted", which can be subjective. The keys are synth action, but more weighted than typical synth action. Not floppy or springy feeling. The action is smooth and has a decent amount of resistance to keep it from feeling cheapy. Also, the key travel is a a tiny bit less than most other keyboards. It feels much nicer (to me!) than any of the other controllers I own. The hardware control app is both comprehensive and intuitive, but straight forward. Very well thought-out. And you can actually make sense of the manual (which you download from their site)! It gives you options for tweaking multiple parameters to taste. The pads, for example, can be set to trigger notes, CC changes, or even MSB/LSB program changes. GREAT investment in your music.
